BARNEGAT — An elderly man was found dead inside his car Saturday morning on the Garden State Parkway in Ocean County.

State Police Trooper Alejandro Goez said another driver called police after coming upon the man's silver Hyundai, which was stopped in a lane just north of Exit 68 for Bay Avenue in Barnegat.

The responding officer at first thought the man was unconscious but when first responders arrived they determined he was dead, according to Goez, who said the man was alone in the sedan.

Goez said police are investigating the cause of death. He did not disclose the man's identity.
